Indication of an Italian translation
This very important alchemical work was translated from the original Latin language into the Italian language by Girolamo Moggia and Vinci Verginelli during the period 1921-1925. This translation (the original manuscript is at the Biblioteca of the "Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei", and belongs to the famous collection of ancient hermetical books donated by Vinci Verginelli in 1984, and of which he wrote a Catalogue entitled "Bibliotheca Hermetica...", edited by Bruno Nardini, Firenze, 1986)was edited just in 1999 by the IBIS Editions.
This book is a masterpiece of hermetic wisdom according to the highest Rosicrucian tradition.
The attribution of the whole work to Joseph de Monte-Snyder is arbitrary: according to the opinion of John Ferguson (Bibliotheca Chemica - London 1954)Thomas VAUGHAN (alias Irenaeus/ Eugenius Philalethes?) 1621-1666, Grand Master of the Rose-Cross, was the author of "Reconditorium ac [...] Chymica Vannus", and Joseph de Monte-Snyder was the author of "Commentatio de Pharmaco Catholico".
